Project Playdate: Bookworms


So the kids were having a playdate on a Sunday and wanted to do something a little different before hitting the pool. So we thought it would be nice to visit the library for some books... We got to the library and it was closed. Ok woops! Should have checked that. So we window shopped our way over to the cutest little book store to browse through a few books instead. These kids have such a wonderful love for books and reading. It is a quality a mother dreams of for her children. We have a few people to thank for this (not including myself because I find it hard to find the time to read...) so I will give the credit where the credit is due here. For starters, our nanny Kelsey. Kelsey was apart of our family during the kids earliest years and made it part of the daily routine to read to them. The library was a weekly activity and I love how the kids took responsibility over returning them on time - always asking - when are our books due?! The other person in the kids lives who spend countless hours reading with them...their teachers of course. I have the utmost respect for teachers. They are a special type of person who have the most powerful influence over our children today. The kids each left with a book and we headed back to Mazzy and Harlow's place. And this is there the fun really began... When the kids got back to Mazzy & Harlow's house they ran away from us immediately to run wild and then sit down to read their books in private...hidden under the treehouse. How precious?! Happy reading friends!
